Japan’s best baseball player

images (1)Ootani Shouhei is a pro baseball player. He is still 19 years old. He is 193 cm tall. He was from Iwate prefecture. His father was a baseball player and his mother was a badminton player.

His family is a sport family. When he was a child, he took part in the tournament of the whole country many times.

He admired Kikuchi Yuusei and went to Hananomaki Higashi high school. Afterward, he got an offer to enter the major leagues and Japanese pro leagues. Finally, he chose Japanese pro leagues. Now, he is playing in Nippon ham fighters. Many people say he is awesome. I wish he will achieve and contribute for Japanese baseball , too.
